Flamboyance meets tranquillity

    Renowned Designer and TV Presenter Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is thrilled to announce his collaboration with UK-based handcrafted furniture brand, Aspire. Taking inspiration from the white-hot ‘Hollywood Regency’ design trend, the Mayfair Lady is a brilliantly stylish bed with a distinct touch of Llewelyn-Bowen glamour.

    Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is best known for his unapologetic, flamboyant style when it comes to both fashion and interiors. For the Mayfair Lady, he has paid design homage to one of his all-time heroes, Cecil Beaton, whose designs made Audrey Hepburn so unforgettable in the multi-Oscar-award-winning film ‘My Fair Lady’. The Mayfair Lady bed design has been handcrafted in the UK, with solid timber framework and hand-carved, varnished feet. It also features hard-wearing timber slats and deep foam padding on both the head and footboards. The piece has been thoughtfully constructed for simple self-assembly and is available in both double and king sizes. The design is Laurence’s hymn to the romantic tradition of the bedroom, combining divine comfort with the unprecedented heights of contemporary glamour. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen comments: “Aspire have allowed me to indulge my passion for glamorous, voluptuous design. I love the fact that the designs I’ve evolved so lovingly are skilfully made by hand, using the traditional British methods which guarantee unparalleled quality and comfort. As a young and dynamic company, Aspire have already begun to spark something of a boutique manufacturing renaissance in the North East, and it gives me huge pride to see these designs brought to life in the UK.”
